LSAT Reading Comp Book Club I: The Introduction

Dan McCarthy is a veteran Blueprint LSAT Prep instructor who scored a 180 on his LSAT. This is the first installment of his multi-week guest series on the reading comprehension section of the LSAT.

One of the myths about the LSAT is that it’s impossible to improve your score on reading comprehension. That’s just not true. I’ve seen many students dramatically improve their reading comp performance, just as with every other section of the test. You just need some hard work and the right techniques.

That said, every myth is based on some form of truth. A significant part of what the LSAT tests in reading comp is your ability to, you know, read. And that’s something that’s built up over the long term.

The Other Thing the LSAT Tests: Your Patience

The LSAT is coming around the bend, and by now you should have logged hours upon hours of study. In less than five weeks, you’ll be taking this most monumental of LSAT tests. But what to do if things just aren’t clicking?

One of the first things you can do is review your LSAT practice exam misses. Many people feel like they understand the concepts but have a hard time translating that into a high accuracy rate. Going over the questions you got wrong can help immensely with this. As you do this, you’ll learn from your mistakes, and becoming aware of those mistakes will make it less likely that you’ll make them on future LSAT tests.

Another thing you can do is review entire lessons. Sometimes people want to just blaze through the lessons and get right to the LSAT homework, but you should never do that.
